Another one for the trophy cabinet
After the Bahrain Grand Prix nished, I headed to the roof that overlooks the podium and waited for the celebrations to end. As Sebastian Vettel was about to leave the rostrum, myself and another photographer called down to him – and he looked up.
Initially he was holding the trophy in his right hand and a bottle of zz in his left, but then he paused, put the bottle down, and held up his nger instead.
You can guarantee that when Seb wins a race he’ll always pose for a picture. It’s great, because not all drivers will do that. The other thing I love about this picture is the size of the trophy. It’s almost as big as the FA Cup! Photographer S:teven Tee
